When using JustJ as your JDK for the Eclipse IDE, how do you get the JDK sources?

In the Eclipse Installer I've selected 'JRE 11.0.2 - http://download.eclipse.org/justj/jres/11/updates/release/11.0.2'. In the target platform I have 'org.eclipse.justj.openjdk.hotspot.jre.full.feature.group' from 'http://download.eclipse.org/justj/jres/11/updates/release/11.0.2'.

When I download an Oracle JDK and extract it to my disk and use that one, I do get the sources.

It is really annoying not having the sources, as then you can't debug into the JDK code when something is wrong.

How can this be resolved?

In versions 15 and higher the src.zip is included. The original expectation was that these JREs would just be used/needed to run Eclipse itself and that Java developers would want a separate JDK for development purposes, but later the Eclipse Packaging Project developers asked to include the src.zip because of course in Windows -> Preferences -> Java -> Installed JREs the JRE used to run the IDE is present by default. Naturally you can add any other JRE available on your system and use that for development. I pointed out that the src.zip is huge, ~55M added to the ~70M of the JRE itself and that only Java developers would want that (not C/C++ developers for example). But there's also stripped variant without the source and with no debug information in the jars which is 1/2 the size so consumers could choose that.

So if you want source, install a newer version or configure the JRE in your preferences to use a JDK you have on your machine. You could update to the latest:
